How to Stay Focused on Losing Weight

What is the hardest thing you have ever tried to do? If you ask 100 people from all walks of life, I'd bet the majority would mention losing weight.

Losing weight can be challenging because we all want to shed the extra pounds just in time for Sally's wedding or next weekend's beach trip. Even though it took time to put on the weight, somehow we want it to magically disappear instantly. The reality is that losing weight takes time for everyone. You're not alone!

Unfortunately, weight doesn't just fall off our bodies, and that's why most of us find it difficult to stay focused on our weight loss goals. Fortunately, there's a solution and it all begins with a positive mindset.

Weight Loss Affirmations and You

The problem that many of us have is that when the weight doesn't disappear right away, we get frustrated or discouraged, and then we easily give into temptation. We have all had those, "Nothing's ever going to work so I might as well just eat" thoughts that set us back when we are just getting started in the weight loss process.

Instead of allowing these thoughts to plant a seed in your mind, you can use affirmations to positively react to negative thoughts. Doing so will also serve as a reminder of your goal. Weight loss affirmations can help you shed pounds by encouraging you to stay focused and motivated, even in times of struggle and disappointment.

Defeating Self-Defeating Thoughts

We all want to think we have the self-control needed to lose weight. However, when the weight loss takes more work or time than we expected it's easy to get discouraged and give in. The problem is that when we get frustrated or impatient, we lose sight of why we initially started on the journey. If you decide to give up or are tempted by a forbidden food, you can pull up your list of affirmations and use them to combat the self-defeating thoughts and attitudes.

When you are about to quit and get that bucket of ice cream, you can tell yourself, for example, "If I stumble, it's okay! I have already made the conscious decision that I will not revert to old habits." When you say this aloud, you are taking power back from the negative thoughts and replacing them with positive ones. Taking back this power is a key step in re-establishing control over your negative actions. Besides, it's okay to stumble along the way. Overcoming obstacles only makes your victory even sweeter!

When you use weight loss affirmations, you will suddenly realize the power of words. Affirmations help you replace negative thoughts and actions so you can combat the cravings and deal with frustrations and pain directly without resorting to food.

The greatest thing about affirmations is that they can be used any time of the day or night. After all, they will become embedded into your subconscious! The more you use them, the more your behavior and decisions will change, and the more power you will have over self-defeating thoughts.
